Just let me know if you need anything else.
Well, look at what just arrived!
Sump is installed and ready for water.
Glad you got your replacement sump safely, it was great of RS to replace it. Everything's looking good.
Yes very happy with RedSea they hooked me up, it was very cool.
Well the truck driver and I did have an oh poo moment when we saw this but thankfully no chipped glass. Just minor rub across the glass edge.
At least you were there to inspect it. Sometimes people get so excited with big boxes they fail to look for damage or hold the courier there until they can inspect the contents if it looks like the box was damaged. I can handle a minor scratch.
very nice build thread! I read it all just now and gasped at the broken sump part and was so relieved to see you got a replacement. Red Sea is awesome! I ordered a XXL 625 last week, now the waiting game. Ugh it's painful
If you have a sec, would you be able to tell me the dimensions of the sump compartment. I have a custom sump and was wondering if it would fit. Fingers crossed for 36"+.
The measurements come in at 41"X23.5"
I was definitely inspecting the entire sump before I signed. RedSea put signs all over the package warning it's glass and not to stack anything on it but the shipping company clearly ignored it.
My last sump was delivered with a volleyball sized hole in it, unfortunately the LFS I ordered it through didn't catch it. He was helping a customer when the delivery came and they specifically set it so you couldn't see the hole.
I just had to approve a replacement order for a commercial LCD screen at work and we ate the cost since it's for a new client. The client clearly saw that the box was damaged but signed for it anyways. If it wasn't for building a new relationship, I would have given my sincerest apologies.
Looking forward to seeing you get this tank filled. While I wait for mine, I started playing with the rockwork and haven't come up with anything I've been happy with yet.
Thank you! Now that the sump is in, final stages to get water flowing have begun. Plans are to eventually transfer everything from my corner tank and shut that one down.
Yeah I really don't think a lot of people understand the importance of inspecting before signing. I felt bad about the sump because I knew RedSea was seriously hooking me up. They really kick butt.
Well I am completely lost as to what I'm going to do with my rock work. I have lots of rock. Spent a few hours literally voting on what rocks go to the sump and what rocks are worthy of the display.
Can't wait to see these grow some coral out.
Started putting a power center together.
I used these for the cabinet lighting.
I have decided to mount all power supplies on the board in the back and mount all equipment controllers on the right.
Then clean all wires up.
I've been looking for some cabinet lights for ages, instead of my LED torch , but sometimes you can't see things for looking to much!
Tank set up is all looking very good and glad your sump is sorted, which also looks very smart.
